    My goodness. Don't these students have any shame?

    If I want the wireless access at Starbucks (which, incidentally, is free), I'd at least have the decency to order a drink there...

    Many youth in developed world nowadays are so selfish! Some don't even want to share the table with you even when the whole place is full!

    Ok I'm new to all this having been away from Singapore in such a long time, but... what exactly is going on?

    I would've thought schools/polys/unis would all have free wireless internet access by now, and surely most of the country is "wired" up and people can't be that desperate to get hold of the net?

    I have a feeling I have a fair few misconceptions here!

    What's more irritating is that the staff don't chase them away.

    It's only decent for them to order a drink if they want to use the tables.

    Then again, someone with a new account posting this makes it quite suspicious.

    Agree.

    I was at Coffeebean Bishan Junction 8 in Nov last year, lots of students were hogging the tables, one couple even had a stalk of flower in a water bottle on the table as decoration - very comfortable. They even blatantly left coffeebean with all the books on the tables & left for dinner, (I was there for about 30mins - which should had been too long for their toilet breaks)

    I asked the staff why they allowed the students to study there the whole day; answer was they were also paying customers. Yeah right, buy one drink, finished halfway so that it could not be cleared away then study whole day, when tired, just surf internet or sleep. What about other paying & dining customers?

    For every pair of students, they occupied two tables/four chairs. That's how much turnover they had lost per student couple.

    Yes, PSA Building is invaded by Foreign PRC students.

    Yes, that is my point from 'you know where'.

    Yes, they do not disturb anyone. But those that uses the places and order from starbucks and obrien's and discuss meetings and such and shun the place because of them.

    Well done dudes.

    Does it matter where they come from? It happens also with Singaporeans, would you have posted the same thing if it were?

    I find it strange that the staff are not doing anything? Some don't seem to have bought anything? Or has it already been taken away?

    At some places I do see messages from the place not to use the place as a study place, forgot which restaurant, could be Burger King at Peninsula Plaza???
